    Hello Balint

    The problem i was having over the weekend with the spinning logo at the market place has gone.  All I have done is go to the profile designer and clear out some copies I made of existing profiles and was not able to finish.

    I am still not able to add or edit joy stick items as the points and values are still not there.

     

    Cheers

    Hello George

    Have you made a new profile in the new os app you need to do that first and while you are there update your brick to firmware version 12.  when you have the information in "Title Description" you can attach a control profile from the market palace and if necessary switch to your private collection.

     

    hope this helps.

    Hello! 

    Thank you for the suggestion, we check it out. 

    Take into consideration the delay, please check your SBricks Firmware, the newest is 12. Sometimes you should update it 2-3 times, till it really finished. 

    After every FW update you should restart your device, it is necessary. 

    Please check this methods. :)

    Hello

    I am still having a problem with my OS app when entering the market place it starts the logo spinning and never competes.  The whole program is locked up and I have to turn the iPad off to clear the issue.  If I just leave the program when I return the logo is still spinning.

    As i posted over the weekend everyting else about the new program is working very well and this didnt start untill Sunday.  On another note I forgot that I was testing OS 10 on my iPad Pro and the new program works well with it except for the spinning logo issue in the market place. This happens now all the time with my iPad on OS 9 and the iPad Pro and sometimes on my iphone which is also on OS 9

    Thanks for the help keep up the good work.

    Morning
    Thanks to Ralph Tamis and others that provided assistance yesterday. Those problems are solved. Brian. I am having the same issue with my os on iPad app and found that once started the only way to clear the issue was to power off the iPad. It happens to me when moving from the market place public profiles to my private ones the display switches and shows 100 % and spins for ever. I also tried Safari to edit my profiles bit the values are still missing in the joystick.
    One last thing on my iPhone when seeking a private profile in the market place I can't scroll past the first four or five to the newest one.
    The rest looks and works very well these things will be fixed I am sure cheers Alex

    Tamas,

    As things were, I couldn't close the app!!

    I switched my phone off completely, left it a while, then re-booted it, and this time the 'scary circles' disappeared. I then went through the update routine to version 12, and everything worked properly, even my disabled truck. At long last (over 4 months!) I can now drive both my trucks properly. I had some lights set up for a sequence, but I think I'll just give that a miss for now.

    The Sbricks with smartphone controllers do work well, but after my experience I think I'll just stick with Lego IR until the bricks are better established and error free. I would also prefer if there was a 1 or 2-channel brick available, rather than having to shell out another £53 when I only need one additional channel.

    As we see in the logs you didn't restarted the app. Please close the app and start it again, then it will works. 
    We see what was the problem, it will be fixed in the next version vers soon.

    I went to try yet another 'firmware update' on my iphone, but firstly I touched the 'circular arrow' symbol next to "Remote Control Profiles" jus to see what it was. BIG MISTAKE!

    The screen dimmed and a symbol of three white rotating concentric arcs took over .... and my Sbrick app is stuck in it.

    Anyone know a quick fix, before I delete the Sbrick app from my phone?

    Dear Brian,

    You just need to go to the "SBricks" menu in the app, then update your SBrick's firmware. Tha latest version the 12. With the latest firmware your SBrick will works without any problem. If the update doesn't work for first time please don't give up, just try it again. During the update please don't move your SBrick and your phone.

    Click the left top. The triple lines logo.

    And then, click the 'sbrick'. 

    Then, choose one of your Sbrick. You should find temprature, voltage, version & fireware in this page.

    If you see the temp & voltage show 0, that means, you need update your IOS to newest version.

    And then, if you see the fireware do not show 12 (show you 2 or 3 or 4 or 8, or whatever but not 12). You need click the update fireware. 

    I have some problems with the update both in this version APP and the last one. 

    It show me 'success' as always, but the fireware still in 4. 

    So, All I can do is click that stupid bottom again & again & again & again. (but some friends told me they just click once, and everything all OK, so I think that's my sbrick's problem)

    And I clicked about 8 times, I found my fireware is 12. Then, everything ALLLLLL OK. I can open the app very fast, login well, control my sbrick. And everything works fine.

    But, the slide bar still have some delay, it was a bit hard (or I should say sticky) to slide. Some control designs work good, but others are not. (it isn't the APP or fireware's porblem, I think.)

    How did you do the firmware update?

    OK, I just found the way to resolve the delay and APP cannot work problems.

    1st, make sure the IOS is up-to-date.

    2nd, update the sbrick's fireware. This is very important, because if still in 4 or 8, it doesn't work, or delay. MUST update to 12.

    But the damn stupid problem is maybe someone same with me, cannot updated! I updated about 4 times, yesterday, but still in 4. And today I updated 3 times. And finally, I successed. Now it was working without any problems.

    I have a different problem besides the update erased all the configurations I have.
    My sbrick works as expected until I slide my finger to the top of the slider, in this position the motor stops. This happens with any control, any profile, any creation. This leaves the sbrick useless.
    I have an iPhone 6S with the last iOS update.

    Why the new IOS APP have about 1 or 2 seconds delay? And Why I need reset all the settings?? When I test it, My car didn't work on my table at first. Then, I push again, it fall down from my table! That's not funny OK!? Please update again, and resolve the stupid problems. Now, all I need to do is change back to lego remote.

    My App on iPhone and iPad was updated automatically. Shit!!!

    What´s that shit? I have to do all my creations again?

    What as I didn´t note down the settings for my creations?

    That can´t be true!!!

    You could easyly give us all a hint to note down all settings.

    I have 13 motors and about 16 sets of LEDs in my Panther Fire Truck which are all connected to five sBricks.

    Now I have to set up all again? Wonderfull!!!!!!

    Well, whoopie!! iOS sorted ... except it isn't!!!!!

    I have two almost identical trucks, both with Sbricks. One worked fine (before the update), one didn't. After having reinstalled the app, my profiles and settings, I now have a minor on/off switch problem with the truck that previously worked, which is annoying enough, but the second truck is a TOTAL DISASTER!

    Both the steering and acceleration continue active for two seconds after I take my finger off the slider, and it runs into things; it is completely undriveable. I had not intended to rebuild my truck quite this early in its life, but I am getting plenty of practice now. Oh, and guess what, the famous steering problem is still there .....

    You know, I've had enough. I've sat with this truck that won't go for four months, waiting for a fix from Vengt. I've converted it to Lego IR control and that's the way its going to stay. Vengt will be getting their Sbrick back with a demand for FULL repayment
